The Rabblecast

Anthony Bourdain(aged 61) was an American celebrity chef, author, travel documentarian, and television personality who starred in programs focusing on the exploration of international culture, cuisine, and the human condition. He was considered one of the most influential chefs in the world. His personality, his no nonsense style, and his storytelling will be sorely missed in and out of the culinary world.

In other news, someone has finally stopped Jason Vorhees, at least temporarily. The rights(currently held by co-creator, Sean Cunningham) to the Friday the 13th franchise are currently being disputed. Victor Miller, the original writer of the script to the first film in the series has exercised what he believes to be his rightful claim(or portion thereof).

While the entertainment lawyers duke it out, anything pertaining to Friday the 13th has been put on an indefinite hold. Fans of Friday the 13th The Game are being directly affected by this dispute. As a result, no future DLC(Down Loadable Content) can be created or released. The game is still playable and available to gaming fans. But until a decision can be rendered the future of the game is currently in limbo.

Also on this episode, we get another "Horrible Event In History"! Doug takes us to Lake Nyos and tells the story of the limnic eruption that led to a natural disaster for the population surrounding the area.

Pro Wrestling Death Matches. You either love them or hate them. Steel chairs, tables, barbed wire, light tubes, and C4(optional) are just some of the many different implements used in this genre of match type. Nine times out of ten, there will be blood. In some cases the performers might be rushed to the locker room for medical attention or taken to the hospital. On this episode we talk about some of the matches we've seen either LIVE or on tape that stand out to us.

From there we jump into some talk about video games. Streaming video game feeds, speed runs on certain games, and some of our favorites. Mega Man X, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out, Track and Field, and Street Fighter are just some of the games that we spent many a late night playing. What are some of your favorites?
